New “A FIELD IN ENGLAND” trailer is best, most KVLT yet
The mad, period-set odyssey A FIELD IN ENGLAND seems to promise, backed by Ben Wheatley’s already fantastic filmography, something singular, stimulating and strange. The latest clip does nothing to change that.
“England, 1648 AD. A small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men: O’Neil and Cutler. O’Neil (Michael Smiley), an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.”
Premiering in theaters, On Demand, on DVD and on television July 5th in the UK, this black magick, occultish trailer makes that all-surrounding, every platform release seem almost mystical. Really exciting, and very cool. Drafthouse Films will release A FIELD IN ENGLAND in the U.S. later this year.
